The Travel Channel is producing a new series built around Megan Fox traveling the world looking for the truth behind some of the world's greatest mysteries. It's called Mysteries and Myths with Megan Fox. Fox is the co-creator of the show and she will also host it and serve as an executive producer.
I've never really thought that Fox would actually be into this kind of stuff, but according to Deadline, she has been obsessed with "the history of ancient cultures, people and places — always questioning their 'documented' story." Now she is teaming up with the Travel Channel to embark on "an epic and personal journey across the globe, where archaeologists and experts will re-examine history, asking tough questions and challenging the conventional wisdom that has existed for centuries. The series will delve into some of the greatest mysteries of time, including whether Amazon women really existed or if the Trojan War was real." Megan Fox has this to say in a statement:
"I would describe myself as a seeker. A seeker is someone who is never content to have obtained enough knowledge. History only gives us a one-sided view of the truth. That’s something I know from personal experience. My own history has been rewritten by other people who had a vested interest in changing the narrative. I haven’t spent my entire life building a career in academia so I don’t have to worry about my reputation or being rebuked by my colleagues, which allows me to push back on the status quo. So much of our history needs to be re-examined.”
Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America added:
"When it comes to debunking the myths around some of our greatest historical mysteries, Megan Fox’s passion for discovering the truth is just visceral. We are as delighted to have her fresh and unbiased perspective on these events as we are to have Megan in our Travel Channel family."
Mysteries and Myths with Megan Fox will be a four-episode hour-long series and production will begin in June, with a premiere slated for later this year. Will you watch Megan Fox go on these archaeological adventures?
